I'll Get By
Eddie Money
(Amato/Hill/Money)

-Peaked at #21 in 1992


Give me one last look
As you walk away
I, I don't know what to say
I start callin' out your name
But I just can't find the words
I know will change your mind
I've tried a thousand times
But I just can't make it right

Someday I pray there will come a day
When I can open up my heart and love again
Until then I'll get by
Somehow I'll get by
I know I'll get by

I take a look around
I see this lonely room
I used to share with you
Now I want to paint it blue
'Cause everywhere I turn
There's something else I find
The notes you left behind
Were you tryin' to be kind

Tell you somethin' baby, there will come a day
When I can open up my heart and love again
Till then I'll pretend
I'll play the fool
Someday I'll find another someone just like you
Till then I'll get by
Somehow I'll get by
I know I'll get by

My heart don't own me
Can't think about it any more
Love's just a memory
Surrounded by these lonely walls
Lately I've been thinkin'
I should move away
No reason left to stay
This house is haunted anyway

I'll tell you something baby, there will come a day
When I can open up my heart and love again
Until then I'll get by
Somehow I'll get by
I know I'll get by
